Sourav Ganguly keen to coach Team India

New Delhi: Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has shown interest to coach Team India. The 42-year-old, who played his last Test in 2008, says he is ready to take the mantle of a coach if the BCCI appoints him. "Obviously, I have interest in coaching but only time will tell what can happen in future. If the BCCI feels that I can be a good coach, I will be ready. I feel I can create a difference in terms of the ability, form and development of the players. That will be the way for me to repay the game," Ganguly was quoted as saying by Hindi news channel 'Aaj Tak'.

Ganguly, who once was a staunch advocate for foreign coaches, now believes that an Indian is more suitable for the job. "Different captains and different coaches brought in the culture within the team where the players believed they could do well abroad. But the Indian cricket is well aware of the modern techniques now. Don`t forget we won the World T20 in 2007 and the CB Series in 2008 under Lalchand Rajput," Ganguly said.
